The Current Programme of Action is organised into the six outcomes of the framework. There are focus areas and actions under each outcome. Just as the outcomes are interconnected, so too are the actions. While categorised under a single outcome, they will often achieve progress across several or all outcomes.
The Current Programme of Action focuses on the actions that the Government will deliver over the next 1–5 years. Work is already being done in some areas and, in others, further work is required. It is a starting point that the Government has committed to build on.
The Current Programme of Action draws on evidence about what works, focuses on where the urgent needs are, and gets started on the longer-term changes needed to transform systems and services to improve the wellbeing of children and young people.
